We propose the establishment of the “Operation One Square Meal” initiative, aimed at providing a nutritious meal for the Vulnerable family in Nigeria on a daily basis. This initiative is a collaborative effort between Julia Consult and Solace Place Foundation International (SOPAFON), a distinguished NGO dedicated to supporting widows, orphans, and vulnerable families. The primary goal of this project is to address the pressing issue of food insecurity by ensuring that underprivileged families have access to at least one balanced meal per day.

The proposed one square meal includes Rice, Beans, Tomatoes, Pepper, Fish,  Crayfish, Seasoning Cubes, Oil, Salt, Vegetables, Onions, etc. These ingredients have been carefully selected to provide a balanced and nutritious meal for the families.

The Target for First batch is to get at least “One Square Meal” for 300 Vulnerable Families in Oyigbo Local Government Area, Rivers State, Nigeria for a period of one Month.

Cost Calculation: The estimated cost at a barest minimum of each meal for a family is as follows:

5 cups of rice: 5 * 250= 1250
Satchet tomatoes: 2* 120 = 240
Pepper: 100
Crayfish: 100
Maggi seasoning: 100
Satchet oil: 150
Salt: 100
Vegetables: 200
Onions: 100
Fish: 600
Other spices: Variable

Total cost per meal: 1250 + 240 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 150 + 100 + 200 + 100 + 600+Variables = 3.88USD or   N2940 per family

TOTAL TARGET FOR FIRST BATCH = 34,953.65USD OR  N26, 460,000 

Julia Consult and SOPAFON will work in partnership to manage the procurement, preparation, and distribution of meals. SOPAFON, with its extensive experience in community development, will identify the families most in need and ensure fair and equitable distribution of the meals.

Our first target location is Oyigbo Local Government, in Rivers State, Nigeria.

The method used in selecting the vulnerable families will be through the denominational administration of each church identifying their most vulnerable families through a Form which would be issued to all Denominations within Oyigbo Axis. Moreso, Forms would be published through Social Media. The information garnered in the form would determine who falls within the range of our prescribed vulnerable families.

We invite Individuals, Celebrities, Organizations, and Corporations to join hands in supporting this vital initiative. Sponsors can choose to contribute funds, food items, or volunteer time for distribution.

Benefits of Participation:

  • Sponsors will have the satisfaction of directly impacting the lives of disadvantaged families by providing them with nutritious meals.
  • Sponsors will have the opportunity to engage with local communities, understanding their needs and challenges firsthand.
  • Sponsors’ contributions will be acknowledged through various channels, including social media, press releases, and event promotions.
  • By participating in this noble cause, sponsors can expect their blessings to multiply, knowing that they have made a meaningful difference in the lives of vulnerable families.
